Child Focus Receives Federal Omnibus Appropriations Bill

Calendar-IconApril 1, 2022

On Tuesday, March 15 President Joe Biden signed into law the $1.5 trillion omnibus appropriations bill, H.R. 2471, for Fiscal Year 2022. The legislation, which passed Congress with bipartisan support, includes Congressionally Directed Spending requests from U.S. Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-Cincinnati).

The legislation appropriates $1 million for Child Focus, a nonprofit organization headquartered in Clermont County that provides early childhood and behavioral health programs to children and families throughout southwest Ohio. Child Focus will use these funds to make improvements to their integrated care facility in Mt. Orab in order to provide substance abuse and behavioral health assistance to children and adults in Clermont County, Brown County, and surrounding communities.

Child Focus is appreciative of Congressman Wenstrup’s efforts to bring these dollars back to the district to provide essential supports that will foster growth and self-sufficiency for adults and children.
